Four people aboard a 35-foot sailboat received the thrill of a lifetime Saturday off Redondo Beach, California, when a humpback whale surfaced suddenly only a few feet from their boat, and struck the vessel before diving.
The accompanying video clip, although it lasts only 11 seconds, captures the remarkable closeness of the encounter, involving a large cetacean that might have been as surprised as the boaters.
“Oh my god!” one of them exclaims, as the whale passes beneath the boat.
Even though we're no longer in Europe, our adventures continue in California!! We went sailing off Redondo Beach and a humpback whale collided with us!!!🐋 Holy giant whale!!!! Dee took the video and John Paul was knocked over in the cabin while getting more beer.
